Mobvoi Unveils Wear OS 3 Update: A Game-Changing Experience for TicWatch Users

In a highly anticipated move, Mobvoi has officially announced the impending release of the Wear OS 3 update, promising a significant enhancement to the TicWatch user experience. This eagerly awaited development is a testament to Mobvoi’s ongoing commitment to delivering cutting-edge services to its valued users. The Wear OS 3 update will be rolled out to a selection of previous TicWatch models, including the TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra GPS, TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra, TicWatch Pro 3 GPS, TicWatch Pro 3 LTE, and TicWatch E3.

To ensure a smooth transition for users, Mobvoi has provided a set of crucial guidelines to be followed before embarking on this exciting journey.

1. Checking Your Watch Build Number and Phone Compatibility

Before diving into the Wear OS 3 update, users are urged to verify that their current watch’s build number corresponds to one of the following:

  • PMRB.220703.001
  • PMKB.211102.004
  • PMKB.211102.002
  • PMRL.220704.001

Android users are advised to check their phone’s compatibility with the Mobvoi Health app on Google Play. If incompatibility issues arise, users may need to switch to an Android phone running Android™ 8.0 and above (excluding Go edition and phones without the original Google Play Store) with pre-installed Google Play Store and Google Play services (GMS).

2. App and Data Availability After the Update

One key point of note is that the update will perform a factory reset on the watch, resulting in the removal of all non-Tic third-party apps and associated data. However, Mobvoi assures users that TicHealth, TicSleep, and TicExercise data previously uploaded in the Mobvoi app will be securely stored and seamlessly synchronized with the new companion app within a week after the update.

Users are advised that certain in-house developed apps, such as Mobvoi Voicememo and TicHearing, will no longer be available on their watches post-update. Additionally, some third-party watch apps on Google Play may be incompatible with Wear OS 3. Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Wallet will also have limitations for iOS users after the upgrade.

3. Feature Differences After the Update

It’s important for users to be aware that not all features available on Wear OS 2 will carry over to Wear OS 3. For example, button customization for the bottom right button will no longer be accessible after the update.

4. Updating Method

The update process involves several steps:

  1. Download and install the update patch on the watch, which may take approximately 10 minutes or more to complete.
  2. On the phone, forget/remove/unpair the watch in both the Google Wear OS app and the phone’s Bluetooth Settings.
  3. Delete the Google Wear OS app and the current Mobvoi app on the phone.
  4. For Android users, download the Mobvoi Health app on the phone via Google Play and pair the updated watch with the newly downloaded app. For iOS users, download the Health Copilot app via the App Store on the iPhone and pair the updated watch with the newly downloaded app.

The announcement of this Wear OS 3 update marks a significant milestone for Mobvoi, and the company expresses its sincere appreciation for the loyalty and trust of its users. With an unwavering dedication to providing an unparalleled smartwatch experience, Mobvoi believes that this update brings them one step closer to achieving that goal.

As users eagerly anticipate the enhanced features that Wear OS 3 will bring to their Mobvoi devices, the company encourages them to stay connected and enjoy the evolving capabilities of their TicWatch. If users have any questions or require assistance, Mobvoi assures them that support is readily available every step of the way. It’s not just an update; it’s a transformative experience for the Mobvoi family.
